Going Vintage

“With perceptiveness and several fun plot twists, Leavitt’s nuanced book is filled with quirky characters that readers will root for and believe in.” ~Publisher’s Weekly

“The differences and similarities of two very different eras will intrigue readers, though it will probably be the interpersonal relationships… that will keep them turning pages.” ~Booklist

“Lindsey Leavitt made me want to go vintage. Readers everywhere will identify with this smart and likable heroine.” ~Meg Cabot,  author of The Princess Diaries series and the Abandon Triology

“Lindsey Leavitt’s best book yet. Mallory’s voice is addictive! Going Vintage is witty, hilarious, real—impossible not to love!” ~Becca Fitzpatrick, author of the Hush, Hush saga

“Going Vintage is heartfelt, funny, and full of insight. I wanted to jump into the pages and make friends with the whole cast.” ~Sarah Ockler, author of Twenty Boy Summer and  The Book of Broken Hearts 

When Mallory’s boyfriend, Jeremy, cheats on her with an online girlfriend, Mallory decides the best way to de-Jeremy her life is to de-modernize things too. Inspired by a list of goals her grandmother made in1962, Mallory swears off technology and returns to a simpler time (when boyfriends couldn’t cheat with computer avatars). The List:

1. Run for pep club secretary

2. Host a fancy dinner party/soiree

3. Sew a dress for Homecoming

4. Find a steady

5. Do something dangerous

But simple proves to be crazy-complicated, and the details of the past begin to change Mallory’s present. Add in a too-busy grandmother, a sassy sister, and the cute pep-club presient–who just happens to be her ex’s cousin–and soon Mallory begins to wonder if going vintage is going too far.
